Baby, it’s warm outside! Toronto breaks temperature record

Warm weather

Colin McConnell/Toronto Star Toronto may have broken a temperature record on Saturday, but the daily high will slip below freezing again Monday.

Torontonians ditched the mittens and donned spring jackets Saturday as a spell of balmy weather broke the day’s highest temperature record.

Saturday’s temperature reached 10 C around 11 a.m., squeaking past the highest temperature record for Jan. 12 of 9.5 C set in 2006.

The temperature, which was forecast to hit 12 C in the early afternoon, brought back warm memories of the record-setting winter-that-wasn’t of 2012.

But those memories are fleeting. The daily high will slip below freezing again Monday, with snow on the horizon for Thursday and Friday.
